What is the acceleration due to gravity for various masses falling from a certain height?
What causes different masses to have variations in g?

all masses are attracted to the earth at 9.8m/s^2
The velocity changes with height, not acceleration.Source(s): BS Chem Engr

The acceleration downwards due to gravity (g) is a constant, 9.8m/s² for all masses, from any height. Acceleration does not vary.
The velocity of a falling body will vary according to the height from which it was dropped.

on earth the acceleration due to gravity is always -9.81 m/s^2Source(s): Physics Teacher
